Authors are invited to prepare papers of no more than six (6) pages in the IEEE conference style including results, figures, and references. The papers should be submitted online. Detailed information is available on the submission page of this website. Papers will be peer refereed. Accepted papers will be indexed by IEEE IExplore as Nafips is co-sponsored by IEEE. Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their paper for possible publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning.


We strongly encourage students to submit papers under the mentorship of their faculty advisors. Special best paper awards will be presented at the conference banquet to recognize the accomplishments of students. To qualify, a student or a group of students must be the primary author(s) of the paper. The papers will be judged based on both manuscript content and presentation quality.


Special session proposals: December 11, 2011
Papers due: January 29, 2012
Notification of acceptance of papers: March 11, 2012
Final papers submission and early registration: April 15, 2012
Conference: August 6--8, 2012


NAFIPS 2012 will be held in a Berkeley, a city close to San Francisco, with a small population and a big reputation. Berkeley is notable for its history of liberalism and social activism and famous around the globe as a center for academic achievement, scientific exploration, free speech and the arts. It has a refreshingly open-minded approach to life and the world in general. Berkeley has a diverse life style with several theater and dance companies, and live music including jazz, folk, world music and indie rock. Many venues are family-driven and a bit smaller than you may be used to, but that just serves to make the experience more personal and unique. One of the main attractions is the Berkeley campus of the University of California with over 30,000 students, world-famous scientists, and is known as a world class academic center. Berkeley is also the site of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
